North Broward Prepatory School senior Emilie Smith, who has become a face of the gun-control push despite not even going to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, revealed that her “team” has jurisdiction over her tweets.
Smith, who has been featured by MTV News, made the bombshell revelation in a back-and-forth with pro-gun Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv.
Well, I had to delete my tweets bc my team asked me to. However, we would all appreciate it if you could be respectful as well. If not I understand.

Big League Politics’ Peter D’Abrosca reported:
A Sunday night Twitter post by David Hogg casts doubt that his Twitter account is actively managed by the student, and instead creates speculation that his liberal activist mother runs the page. The post tags Facebook, requesting they remove a fake account in his name, but the account that is shown logged in on Facebook in the top right corner is of his mother, Rebecca Boldrick.
The Tweet has been deleted, but Big League Politics has an exclusive screenshot of the Tweet.
Big League Politics broke the story showing that Hogg’s mother was a CNN VIP and vocal anti-Trump activist. Now it appears likely that Hogg’s mother has a much larger influence over the actions of the gun control activist’s public presence.
This also opens up the question of whether or not Boldrick is simply using her son’s newfound fame to promote her liberal agenda. The Twitter account, that now has over 400,000 followers has posted many non gun-related political Tweets in the past weeks.
During the union-led school strikes in West Virginia, Hogg posted a Tweet in support of the walkouts, which seemed odd for a High School Senior in Florida to have much of an opinion of.

YIKES: WHO Breaks With APA on Gender Dysphoria, No Longer Mental Disorder
The World Health Organization (WHO) has dropped a mental health disorder from it’s official list of diseases, breaking with the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
“In its revised International Classification of Diseases, released Monday, the WHO removed transgender identity as a mental health disorder and added gaming disorder to the list,” according to a report by The Week. “Recategorizing transgender as a sexual health condition is aimed at cutting stigma and improving quality of care, says the WHO.”
It is the WHO’s first revision to its list of diseases in 28 years.
Transgenderism is considered a mental disorder by the APA. It is officially named “gender dysphoria.”
“Gender dysphoria involves a conflict between a person’s physical or assigned gender and the gender with which he/she/they identify,” says the APA. “People with gender dysphoria may often experience significant distress and/or problems functioning associated with this conflict between the way they feel and think of themselves (referred to as experienced or expressed gender) and their physical or assigned gender.”
But dropping a disease from the official list to avoid “stigma” makes little sense. Many recognized mental health disorders have stigmas attached to them. In response, the diseases are treated, not “de-stigmatized.”
The transgender suicide rate is extremely high compared to that of the population at large. More than 40% of transgender people will attempt suicide at some point, according to a UCLA report. The rate among the rest of the population is about 4%.
Now, with the World Health Organization’s complicity, the political left is trying to pass off a 36% higher suicide rate among transgender people as the result of a societal “stigma” instead of a mental health problem. The stigma is clearly not the problem, evidenced by the fact that the suicide rate before and after “transitioning” is exactly the same, according to the same UCLA study.
The political left is making a clear effort to propagandize the public instead of telling the simple truth about transgenderism.
RIP PEPE: EU Votes ‘Yes’ on Meme Ban
In a devastating blow to those who enjoy internet freedom, a group of leftist government bureaucrats have effectively banned memes from Europe.
“Article 13 (a.k.a. censorship machines) will make platforms responsible for monitoring user behavior to stop copyright infringements, but basically means only huge platforms will have the resources to let users comment or share content,” according to The Next Web. “People opposed to the proposal worry that this could lead to broader censorship, threatening free speech via parody, satire, and even protest videos.”
Since memes are usually made from copyrighted images, the European Union has essentially outlawed them.
The meme magicians responded exactly the way one would expect.
“EU voted to pass [Article 13] and ban memes…it is time – Meme War 3 has begun,” said an anonymous Twitter user.

“EU is voting to ban Memes through censorship machines. #LOL,” said Narek Panossian, attaching two memes to his tweet.

Even Yahoo UK savored some of the absurd, using a caption photo with a popular meme:
EU approves copyright law which could ban memes and ‘destroy the internet’ https://t.co/MWUVXHDP8o

Not all European lawmakers are on board, though.
“[The Copyright Directive is] on the verge of causing irreparable damage to our fundamental rights and freedoms, our economy and competitiveness, our education and research, our innovation and competition, our creativity and our culture,” wrote Julia Reda, a German politician and Member of the European Parliament on her website. According to Reda’s site, “over 80 signatories representing human and digital rights organisations, media freedom organisations, publishers, journalists, libraries, scientific and research institutions, educational institutions including universities, creator representatives, consumers, software developers, start-ups, technology businesses and Internet service providers.”
Flashback: Mitt Romney Loves L. Ron Hubbard
A U.S. Senate Candidate from Utah revealed a curious fact on the presidential campaign trail in 2012.
“Actually, the one by L. Ron Hubbard,” Mitt Romney responded when asked about his favorite novel. “I’m not in favor of his religion by any means but he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was a very fun science fiction book.”
Hubbard was the founder the of the Church of Scientology. He holds the Guinness World Record for most published works by one author. Much of his fictional writing, including “Battlefield Earth,” influenced the doctrines of Scientology. In fact, the book was rendered into a horrible movie in which John Travolta, perhaps the most famous Scientologist, played the lead role.
Some themes from Scientology run parallel with “Battlefield Earth.”
For example, one group in the book uses electroshock therapy in order to maintain control. Hubbard frequently claimed that psychiatrists were wrong for labelling electroshock therapy ineffective, and claimed in Scientology that they did so in order to maintain control.
One supporting character in the book is described as having been shaped by the views of his mother. His mother was a member of a resistance group, referred to as a “church,” and much like the Church of Scientology, it opposed psychiatry.
Romney is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, better known as Mormons.
